Thanks! Though I think it's more of a girl name but I'm not sure.

Most cross dressers are married men. My sister in law watches Rue Paul's drag race so I don't have an open mind to it. And it's just not my thing. It would make an interesting thread though haha.

The only cross dressers I have ever met personally were mostly motivated by "Darell Washington has five warrants out in his name but ain't nobody ever heard of Madame Pussy-Boots"

I have a couple girl shirts, nothing serious. However, I hang out with a few girls who are REALLY into cosplay and so they crossdress normally. It's mildly jarring to meet up with a friend...and suddenly, she has blue hair and is wearing a boy-suit. Mildly jarring, but awesoem.

Typewriter, teach me British slang.  I almost started a new thread for this but I figured you can keep this one going.  I watch some British TV so I've learned a little bit.

Okay so a wanker is like a jackoff, asshole, calling someone a dick basically right?

But if you were to say wank, it means jack off literally.

A chav is one of those posh wannabes who wear the Burberry caps but dress all ghetto gangster, right?

What other crap can you teach me?  I might want to write a British character one day.

Yup that's pretty much all correct. Uh,

duss and do one mean go away, but those are only used by state school kids or idiots.

Cuppa= some tea

dead= very, ie. dead good

daft= silly

top lad= awesome guy

dog's bollocks= very awesome

dough, wonga= money

legless= drunk

loo, bog= bathroom

sesh= session, usually drinking

to skive, bunk= to not do work

to waste= to kill

wasteman= asshole

biddy= old woman

bloody hell/Nora= dammit

Bob's yer uncle= there you have it (I HATE THIS ONE)

brass monkeys= very cold (i don't know why either)

brekky= the healthiest meal of the day!

...

that's as much as i can get off the top of my head, don't go overboard with the CRS cause otherwise it will read grossly. Americans will go, "Ooh, how British" and we'd go... "Is this supposed to be us?" Remember, with slang, everything in moderation

I know what you mean here - in the opposite direction.  I read a British author who wrote about an American man.  The whole time I thought - "You know we don't talk that way, don't you?"  It wasn't that there was slang...it just it was written exactly like the British characters, only without any slang.  The cadence wasn't exactly right...or something.

@Typewriter.  Wow, some of those are hilarious.  "Bob's yer uncle" lol  That's awesome.  People really say that?  Love it.  I notice a lot of kids are now saying something is golden to mean cool or awesome or epic.  I watched some episodes of Skins, Inbetweeners and Misfits and learned some terms.  Is the nightclub scene really big over there?  Judging by these TV shows, it seems like all underage kids do is go party and get wasted and fuck and take lots of drugs.

It comes in waves. Nightclubs HUGE in the nineties with the boom of E's. (which I was too young for) The drugs have come and gone into vogue since. At least around the places I have lived they have. E's are on a low at the moment. There's a lot of speed about. Also, we had that whole Mcat bullshit. Nowadays the die-hards stick to snorting MDMA as the people who make the pills cut them up a lot.

The clubs are always there though. Opening for a couple months then being taken over and having the name changed and then rinse and repeat. Getting pissed is the number one hobby for most 16-25 year olds. I used to get wasted into pubs and clubs a lot when I was a teenager. Cut it all back to mostly drinking when I went to uni.

As for the slang - honestly you would not believe the range of slang words & accents between different parts of England, considering how close we are geographically. Compare Geordie (Newcastle & surrounding) to Brummie (Birmingham), or Scouse (Liverpool) to Cockney (London). Check out our  version of the deep south country bumpkin - hailing from somewhere like Somerset. You have to hear one of these people say the words 'combined harvester.' It is sooo good.

This is something else I noticed when I moved to the city to study and was then surrounded by folks from all over the country. None of us can understand each other.

This is the only way to go. The tabs now a days don't even have MDMA in them. But for two weeks straight I did waaay too much Molly and overdosed and had withdrawals. Fuck MDMA. But go big or go home. Don't do drugs kids. Unless it's psychedelics.

Are you....old enough to remember when Pitino was coach?  What I'm getting at....do you hate Duke? 

.'s picture
. December 4, 2011 - 11:13am

I started following Kentucky a little late. Right about when Smith took over. But I still hate Duke even if I did miss the train. It's apart of history that will make UK fans forever loath Duke for generations to come.  

I think Kentucky is a bit over rated though. And I wish Brandon Knight was still on the team. I hated John Wall. Denny Crum came to a party that my uncle's father in law hosted. 

I name dropped and touched all the bases that I needed to. I'm not really a die hard fan though. With sports, I could take them or leave them. I'm a UK fan like I'm a liberal. I don't really think about it until the time comes when I need to blab a bunch of jargon. 

Alright so anyway, I don't understand why all the Louisville fans got mad when Kentucky beat UNC, that means Louisville will go up a bit now. They're irrational but I guess at least they're not Duke fans.

Hell On Wheels is pretty bad ass. It fills the void that was left in me when Breaking Bad ended.

Honestly it isn’t jarring at all, but that might be more my standards then the experience.
I'm also working on A Defense of Masochism, High Druid of Shannara (first book that I would burn for heat in an emergency), How I Sold 1 Million Ebooks in 5 months, The O'Reilly Factor, UR, Millie’s Fling, Bambi, Under the Dome, and I'm taking a special pleasure in The Jungle Book. It's like eating red velvet cake; it's so rich I have to take big breaks with all this other stuff between slices.
I was working on a huge number of books and it was getting a little hard to keep track of all of them so I have started finishing ones without starting new ones. Mostly this is the result of preKindle days when I'd have some at my apartment, a few at relative’s houses for when I visited, one in the car, etc. Now that I have them all centrally located in one book shelf and new stuff coming most in the ebooks form I have the number way down.

I think I'd hate that.  I like to read one book at a time, unless I am re-reading something.  I can generally read a book a week (if it's average length and not written by King).  I can't imagine how long it would take me if I were reading 89 books at a time.

Ah, okay.  I can see that.  I have at times read two at once, but not really.  Did that make sense?  No, it didn't.  I will have a book I am actually reading somewhere, and then a copy of an old favorite that I can flip through on the coffee table just in case I need something to do.  But I don't generally read two new books at once. 

Although, I guess it wouldn't be more difficult than keeping up with a couple different TV shows...

Having a photographic memory often strikes girls as though you have a creepy fixation on them. A perfect memory can be quite unsettling to others around you.
